The Fort McCoy Personnel Services Branch can issue ID cards for members of all branches of service — active, reserve, guard, retirees and dependents — as well as Department of Defense civilian employees and contractors.

Two valid forms of identification, one of which must contain a photo, are required for issuance of an ID card. Examples of valid identification are: a driver’s license; a state-issued identification card; a Social Security card, a birth certificate or a passport.

Dependents obtaining ID cards must be accompanied by their sponsor or must have in their possession a completed Department of Defense Form 1172-2 (Application for Identification Card/DEERS Enrollment) that has been signed and notarized by the sponsor. Sponsors who have a Common Access Card may digitally sign the DD Form 1172-2 on line at the RAPIDS Self Service website (https://www.dmdc.osd.mil/self_service) after creating an account.

Active-duty servicemembers and servicemembers reaching retirement age also must have orders/contracts with them when obtaining ID cards.

Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS)

Adding a spouse or child to DEERS requires presentation of original documents (marriage certificate, birth certificates, driver’s license and Social Security cards).
